While most people's phones last just a couple of days, Samsung claims it has developed a phone that offers a standby battery life of up to 67 days. The features are pretty basic though, but the Xcover E2370 will only cost around 80EUR.
Although this is just an entry-level device, it has an outstanding capability: its battery can last up to 67 days (2 months) in stand-by, or up to 22 hours in talk-time mode – Philips Xenium phones are so yesterday now, with their ridiculous 1 month of stand-by time.
First I though the Xcover is a never-seen-before handset, but it’s actually the E2370 that Samsung showcased in February at MWC 2010.
Anyway. The Xcover is IP54-certified, thus being dust and splash resistant. The phone weighs 115 and it’s quite bulky (19mm thick). It features GSM/EDGE connectivity, a 128 x 160 pixels TFT display, Bluetooth, FM radio, VGA photo camera, 5MB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 2GB).

I recently bought one of these because I believed the hype regarding the battery life,but so far mine has failed to last longer than 6 days on standby,so samsung can promise all they want,but they can't deliver and the dual speakers aren't any better than an ordinary mobile with single speakers,add to that the user face is old fashioned and not user friendly especially compared to a nokia.
